The Arts Club Theatre Company is lacing up their rollerskates in their latest production of Xanadu. This upbeat disco-dancing musical is based on the 1980 Universal Pictures Film that was adapted from the book by Douglas Carter Beane (To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar; The Little Dog Who Laughed).

Take a magical ride to a world where fantasy, romance, and shiny satin jumpsuits reign! A beautiful Greek muse descends from Mount Olympus in an impenetrable disguise of leg warmers and an Aussie accent to help mortal Sonny realize the greatest artistic achievement of all time: to open a roller disco! Featuring the cult classics “Suddenly” and “Xanadu,” this musical is “Magic” on roller skates!

This “outlandishly zany spoof” stars Marlie Collins (in Olivia Newton-John’s role from the film) Gaelan Beatty as Sonny. Xanadu will run from June 21, 2012 until August 4, 2012 at the Granville Island Stage.

The Arts Club has offered up a prize for one Miss604 reader that includes two tickets to opening night (June 27th) and a $100 gift card for dinner at The Sandbar on Granville Island.
